CFA was solid - for those in the SF Bay Area, we hit what I believe is still the closest one, which is in the Solano Mall in Fairfield (we were on our way to Lake Tahoe). I have fast food pretty infrequently these days, so would still prefer In-N-Out over the spicy chicken sandwich I had, but CFA's chicken is definitely better than any other fast food chicken (based on sample size of 1).
The things that amuse old married couples: My wife and I are in grubs, getting ready to walk down to some BBQ joint on US50. We exit the elevator, and opposite us, a couple exits another elevator, and proceeds to walk in the same general direction, through the casino, in front of us.
The woman was attractive, not smokin', and had a big, fake rack proudly displayed in a slinky, red dress. I ask my wife, "Did you happen to notice that woman in the red, coming out of the elevator?" She says no. I say, "Keep watching the eyes of everyone we pass that's walking in the opposite direction." She starts cracking up as every guy (and well over half the women) immediately start staring as though there was oncoming set of headlights, which, I guess, there were.
I got skunked at Caples Lake, we lost a small pile of money, and the only highlight was somehow winning $500 playing 2-3 NLHE at Harvey's.
Most interesting pot I was not involved in was 4-ways with 1 all-in on Q86 flop, 1 more all-in on J turn, and 1 all-in on brick river (I think it was a 3). Q6 wins a huge sidepot, Q8 takes the main. I couldn't believe there wasn't at least one set out there.
So. Shepard is an 'N7,' and wears a patch declaring same. 'N' indicates MOI (Special Forces in this case) and '7' indicates proficiency, not rank (the highest possible rating, ldo.) Kewl. But what about the scrubs. If you're, say, N1, do you have to wear your 'hey guyz I'm a drooling ******' patch around and get patronized and laughed at and ****?
